Pema Osel Ling near Santa Cruz that I know of and there surely must be others. http://www.polmountainretreat.com/default.aspx

That's because there isn't any. Nonetheless, a three-year retreat is in progress there right now.

Frankly speaking......
I'd say that rather than looking for a "three year retreat," it would be a good idea to build a relationship with the teacher first....I suppose someone could just "drop themselves" into ANY three year retreat, but I would think a good relationship with the Vajra Master would be the most important thing.

Perhaps that's just me.

It is realized through the blessing grace of the Guru and fortunate Karmic potential.
